The nervous system is particularly fascinating for many biologists because it controls animal characteristics such as movement, behavior, and coordinated thinking. Invertebrate neurobiology has traditionally been studied in specific model organisms, whilst knowledge of the broad diversity of nervous system architecture and its evolution among metazoan animals has received less attention. The attractions of invertebrate nervous systems have long been appreciated by neurophysiologists. Indeed some of the milestones in our understanding of nervous systems have their foundations in experiments done on invertebrate preparations, typified by the role of the squid axon in dissect­ ing the events that constitute the action potential.

Nervous System. An insect’s nervous system is a network of specialized cells (called neurons) that serve as an “information highway” within the body. These cells generate electrical impulses (action potientials) that travel as waves of depolarization along the cell’s membrane. * The very best comprehended endocrine systems are those of insects, followed by shellfishes, echinoderms and mollusks, although the latter are possibly identified by the most diverse hormone systems of the invertebrate phyla.

This book presents a diversity of approaches based on a broad back­ ground of animal groups ranging from the earliest nervous systems in cnidarians to the most recently evolved and advanced in. The articles report on recently gained knowledge about diversification in the invertebrate nervous systems, and demonstrate the analytical power of a comparative approach.

Novel techniques in molecular and developmental biology are creating new perspectives that point toward a theoretical foundation for a modern organismic biology. Search for this keyword.

ADVERTISEMENTS: The nervous system in Molluscs (Figs. ) presents numerous diversities. It exhibits gradual coming up of complexi­ties from simple to complex which can be marshalled into one perspective—the nerv­ous co-ordination. Prior to the description of the nervous system in different forms of Molluscs a basic plan of the Molluscan nerv­ous system is to be [ ].
